We spoke to Lessa Hine who told us since she discovered juicing she’s lost weight, sleeping better and has more energy for her children…

What got you in to juicing?

I had heard some good things about juicing and was keen to see if it could aid my weight loss. This is when my Mum, Sandra Thurston, told me about something she had watched something on TV that featured Jason Vale.

Which programme did you follow?

My partner kindly brought me a juicer and I downloaded the 5lbs in 5 days app.

What were your results?

I was so impressed with how much better I was sleeping, how good I felt and that I didn’t fancy a cigarette or alcoholic drink. I have lost 8lbs and my clothes feel so much looser.

I have 3 children one of which is Autistic and a type 1 diabetic, I feel like I have so much more energy to keep up with all of his demands, as well as the younger 2, which is life changing for us all.

This week after seeing my results my partner has decided to start juicing with me, which I’m really happy about. I would recommend this to everyone, I don’t think anyone could say no to such a natural boost.

What is your favourite juice?

As much as i really enjoy Turbo with a kick, Berry Banana Crunch is definitely my favourite.
